Reply to Marvin,EA's Post: it was placed in service 2001 and yes depreation was used
Tax Professional: Marvin,EA, Enrolled Agent replied 9 years ago
If it was place in service on 2001 was deprecation used for the next 5 years? How much did the truck cost? You might have depreciated the full cost of the truck.

Reply to Marvin,EA's Post: the truck was leased purchased new in 01, for $98,000 ( $473.27 a week for 5 yrs) here are the deprecations for the yrs
$7,760 for 06
$17,670 for 05
$11,165 for 04
$9,685 in 03
$9,185 in 02
$27,556 in 01 had a diffrent truck also in this year that was traded in for one in question.
so if i depreciated the value of truck already, i cannot write it off right? and if i could can i just put it on part V of sced. C other expenses? but i think i understand now, since I already depreciated it so much, its just my loss right?

If you depreciated the truck completely from 2001 to 2006 , the truck cost have been deducted. You cannot write the cost of the truck off twice.
